"It's up to you to keep the home fires burning, to see that you and your family stay easy-on-the-eyes. Fortunately, you can be patriotic and pretty both. It's easy to teach an old wardrobe new tricks, to resurrect the skeletons in your closet and bring them up to date. Come on, take those old knockabouts and turn them into knockouts, keep that glint in Uncle Sam's eye and still do your stint towards Victory!"

A superb book, with so many useful tips, and so much advice on making do with what you have, and how to make it go further in a tight budget. Should be compulsory reading for the ‘me’ generation. Lol
But as always, get the PDF, then you get the whole book, with pictures.

because the epub file won't show all of the images properly- some won't come in, some don't display the same as in the original. The best patterns in this title are for items quite out of fashion: dickies, collars, and so on- but it does have good tips on altering and remaking good garments into other styles. Clothes in the '40s were expensive and much better quality than the average garment made today.
